Airline passenger FLIPS OUT over $20 baggage fee, causes THOUSANDS in damage to airport: Cops

A would-be passenger at a Tennessee airport allegedly left her mark after hearing she was on the hook for a $20 baggage fee.

According to WREG, one witness recorded the breakdown and posted footage from inside the Memphis airport to social media.

Police believe the woman is Tamiko Warner and allege she caused more than $2,500 in damage to the building during the tirade.

Given the range of items — including electronic devices, carpeted areas and phones — potentially damaged in the incident, authorities say the total damage could be as high as $10,000.

In addition to knocking over furniture and causing other disruptions, she can be seen spraying a fire extinguisher and obstructing the view throughout the area.

The incident keeps going for about five minutes.

As the U.K. Daily Mail reported, a police report alleges she also threatened airline staff during the criminal outburst.

“I don’t care about going to jail,” the woman in the video states. “Whatever. This is worth it.”

She began clapping at one point, prompting expressions of dismay by some onlookers.

Maria Rivera called the woman’s behavior “terrible,” adding that “people need to check themselves before acting like this in public.”

As of the latest reports available, Warner remained behind bars with bond set at $5,000. She is expected to face criminal charges including disorderly conduct and vandalism.
